TUKWILA, WA—(club release) Sounders Women Head Coach Hubert Busby has steadily built his roster for the 2015 W-League season as the Sounders Women head into the open tryouts this weekend at Starfire Sports Complex. Part of that process is making sure the goalkeeping core is ready for tough conference play. Kate Scheele (Seattle, WA) and Emily Boyd (Seattle, WA), two locally developed goalkeepers, will return to Seattle this summer to hold down the nets for the Sounders Women.

“Both Kate and Emily are locally developed keepers we’ve been monitoring for some time,” stated coach Busby, “Both had great seasons in the PAC 12 conference this past fall and we expect them to continue their strong play in goal this summer. We want to follow in the tradition of the Sounders Women having great keepers and these two continue the trend.”
